Senior Golf Report 2010 Grange Golf Course Rathfarnham

Friday, October 15th, 2010.

By Tony Reilly

senior_golf_2_2010What a day for golf! The Grange Golf Course in Rathfarnham was the venue for the Senior Boys and Girls Golf outing 2010. I have to commend the course managers and green staff; the course is impeccable and even at this stage in the year the green was fast.

A record number of contestants turned up to challenge for the 2010 title, with no less than 16 teams of three teeing off. Many thanks to all the organisers who helped make this a success by sending out a team. Represented were Pearse, Crumlin, Inchicore, Rathmines Ballsbridge and the previous year’s title holders Whitehall College.

Eager to set the pace, Whitehall were one of the first teams out on course, it was a wonderful sight to see so many young people on the golf course. The majority were boys but hats off to the one lady (representing Ballsbridge) that turned up and might I add playing off a handicap of 12 was one of our lowest handicapped golfers on the day. Maybe next year we will see more ladies take up the challenge.

The competition of the day was a three ball scramble, a friendly game that allows every ability to contribute with less pressure than the standard game. The scramble traditionally sees low scores, and this year was no exception with the majority of scores in the early to mid 60’s.

This year’s honours went to:

1stPearse College (Mathew Cunningham 18, Mark Prendergast 15 ansenior_golf_2010d Neil Heffernan 9) shot a 61⅝

2ndCrumlin College 64 ⅝ (William Donahue 18, Paraic Kelly 18, Ian Mulrooney 6)

3rdInchicore College two teams finished joint third on (65).

Longest drive went to Ian Mulrooney 6 from Crumlin College.

Shot of the day went to Michael Collins (Inchicore College) who chipped in from 100 yards for eagle on a Par 4. I am assured that it was by pure genius as opposed to blind luck as Michael put it himself.

Special thanks to Michael Hunt and Martin Finn for their advice and help on committee and with the cards.

Next years date is set for Friday the 14th of October 2011, and after a meeting with the Sub committee we will run the same format next year again, we have asked for an extended tee time. Keep up the good work promoting the game and I will be in contact early in September.
